I was in Balikpapan on an overnighter and stayed at the Zurich fora change. It is still a good old hotel and good value. Check in was done in a flash and I dropped the bags in the room and headed out. As usual put your mates namecard in the power slot to keep the AC on (in case you... More

One thing i have to say, u should think again to stay here. Looks like the management doesnt really care whether the customer love to stay here or not. Whatever it is, the customer should accept the less-proper condition of the hotel. I was having an event here, and reserved 3 rooms for my visitor. They are famous actor from... More

Firstly I think this place is a 3-star hotel, not a B&B/Inn. Its located near from airport & is closer to a big mall. This place can certainly do much better if they work on it for example Rooms are pretty dark cause of bad light placements, Can change the old box television set with new ones, It takes forever...

This hotel is very easy to reach coming from the airport. It is also located close to Balikpapan's largest retail centre. This was the reason I booked this hotel and was quickly proven to be the right decision. Places are so easy to reach, from the east areas of Batakan, the city center to the west, and the residential areas... More

Note to tripadvisor.com: I think this place is a 3-star hotel, not a B&B/Inn. It's located on one of the city's main street and has an ocean-view for some rooms. It's got a good location, near to a big mall. Checking in and out without any hassle. I agree that the staff here could be more friendly with more smile... More

If all you are looking for is a room then this is the place to stay. Room is clean and quality is ok. But if you are looking for service then don't expect much. It takes forever for your food to arrive after ordering food, we have even asked for what would be the fastest and it still came 30... More
